    Hi folks,

    After a brief hiatus, mainly due to my own involvement in the PW Draft, The Spotlight thread is back. Its basically a bit like inside the actors studio, except with PW boardsies in place of the actors.

    If your unfamiliar with the concept, Ill explain. Basically each week I shall start a new thread with a different member of PW Boards featured each week,

    In this thread the other boardies can ask him or her a host of different questions. Questions can vary from favourite match, to how they came up with their usernames to what the had for tea last night, with the aim of the thread being that we know that particular boardsie a bit better when the week is done.
    There are some rules :

    1. Questions should be Pro Wrestling related although some leeway is allowed e.g. TV and Film interests (Stuff we all talk about in the Off-Topic Thread)
    2. Let's not have questions that are too personal. The poster doesn't have to answer anything they don't want to.
    3. Moderator has final decision on what questions are appropriate or deemed too personal or unrelated.
    4. No discussion of poster's answers in the thread (follow up questions are ok)
    5. Only the poster featured should be answering the questions.
    6. There will be a limit to 3 questions per post.

    .

    This week, as you can tell by the thread title, we welcome Soccer Mod and PW Board veteran, Lord TSC into the Spotlight studio. Fire the the questions at him lads?

    Ill go first as always?

    1) Why the change from Teamshadowclan to Lord TSC when you became a mod?

    2) Who is your favourite wrestler and why?

    3) Whats your biggest gripe with WWE TV recently?

    3) Whats your biggest gripe with WWE TV recently?

    1. When I got modded and my name got bolded, it was one letter too long to fit on one line. It started displaying as...

    TeamShadowcla
    N


    ...so decided to change it. I wanted to keep the TSC abbreviation (I've been using it in some form for years, both here and other sites). The obvious variations were already taken (TSC, T.S.C. and so on). And since I'd never had an avatar before, and wanted to use it to have a Rooster Teeth one, and settled on the one of King Gus, I decided to go with some "royal" name. Lord TSC was the one I went with.

    2. Favorite wrestler will probably change day by day.

    Of all time, probably CM Punk. Loved nearly everything about his character, his inring ability, his ability to change and evolve as needs be. Loved that he was never this jacked up monster. And as a non-drinker, I liked that side of him (though, admittedly, he can be a bit too preachy about it). i think Punk probably has as close to the "total package" as I've ever seen any wrestler have.

    Current though; I think there's a rotating list of guys and gals who will top it depending on my mood. I've bought New Day and Finn Balor merch over the last year, so that probably puts them pretty close to the top. I've enjoyed Rusev a lot recently, and think he has so much potential. Heath Slater is someone I always watch when he comes on TV; just feel he's so immensly entertaining.

    3. Biggest gripe? WWE are one of the few forms of entertainment where there is an instant form of fan feedback (in the form of crowds), and that should make it so ridiculously easy to choose who to push and how to book stories. Instead, they have a horrible habit of not just ignoring but actively working against what fans want. Not just in terms of Reigns, but in terms of pushing guys who the crowd are desperate to get behind and like. WWE seem intent on actually deriding the crowd for saying who they like, and I just don't get that at all.
    What were your big plans for Trump and co if you had had the time to write em up in the draft?

    Do you ever regret taking the soccer modship off me ?

    If you could book yourself to beat anybody in the history of wrestling, who would it be?

    With Trump, I actually have the outline/bullet points for what I was planning with the draft on another computer. I'll post it up later on.

    Regret taking the modship. Nah :P There's a few people who are timesinks but I just don't let them get to me. And I try to conveniently lose internet access when there's big United games on sometimes ;)

    When I was younger, I used to think (for whatever bizarre reason) that me and Carlito would have been an awesome match up. I have no idea why. I used to think that if I was a wrestler, with a certain style and ability, we could have torn the house down. With me winning of course :D

    You can invite 5 people from the world of pro wrestling to dinner. Name them?

    Same Q with five people from any walk of life?

    Soccer questions.

    LVG for another year or giggs if it came to it?

    Cantona or Ruud?
    Becks or CR?
    Denis Irwin or Gary Neville?
    Keano or Scholesy?


    You can pick one united GK from any period to save a penalty(remember now VDS champs league final,Big Pete v Arsenal and DeGea last week) who would you choose?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,429 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Your all-time favourite Man United player?

    What was it that got you interested in wrestling?

    Probably Keane or Scholes. Always loved me a good midfield general. De Gea is quickly pushing into the bracket though. And Ronaldo was ok too, I guess.

    Honestly, I can't remember. Its something I was always into. I can remember going to events in the Point as a little kid, chatting about it with friends in the little one classes, watching it when I could. Its not that my parents were into it. It's just always been something I've watched and enjoyed.
    1. Who would you pick to win Money in the Bank this year?

    2. Who is your personal favourite wrestler to never win a World title in WWE?

    3. Vince McMahon binged on the TV station Dave while in the UK recently and has ordered a comedy panel show for the WWE Network. Which 6 people would you select to take part in the first episode?

    1. If Bray is back, him. Imagine if he cashes in with the lights going out, turn on and bam, he's there with the case! Failing that, I think doing something with the New Day "Freebirding" the world title could be interesting too. Kevin Owens seems more likely to be in "that" position though, in terms of being ready for needing that final boost up the ladder (lol, pun).

    2. I've always been a Shane O'Mac mark, and when you consider the list of people who have won it, it's possibly surprising he never got a moment with it during the Attitude era.

    3. New Day on team 1 (Their Table for 3 episode was great, and they seem to have a great charisma between them). Bubba Ray, Edge and Christian on the other team.

    1. I know this sounds like a cop out, but I genuinely can't pick one. I adore the draft and the creativity that it yields, and there's so many combos I'd love to see in real life. I always love "Old vs New" stories, so the Flair, Cesaro & Horsemen story really stands out, obviously.

    2. Again being honest, I don't watch a massive amount of wrestling outside of WWE, so I don't really have an answer to that, quiet simply cause I'm ignorant of a lot of the talent outside of that "universe". I'd love to see Angle back and think, in NXT, a lighter schedule could benefit him.

    3. Easily...

    55805bad96ce2.jpg

    Always loved the yellow/green look. Also really liked the Tartan one.

    I wear it every now and again, with RVP's name on the back. It was a cool and unique design.

    5 from the world of wrestling:
    Vince, obviously. I think he must have some crazy stories.
    Heyman, for same reason.
    Punk, to chat **** and cause controversy. :P
    Jericho's books have always been enjoyable, so he can come (if he doesn't talk about his band).
    Flair, again for the stories.

    5 from outside the world of wrestling (Going to be a focus on creative minds I look up to here):
    Joss Whedon (wrote and directed so many of my favorite shows, movies, etc).
    Burnie Burns (co-founder of Rooster Teeth, and someone who I think has done amazing things through hard work, creatively).
    Stephen King (Writer of some of my favorite books)
    Kevin Feige (head of Marvel Studios, so we can talk MCU)
    Arron Sorkin (so we can chat about The West Wing, Studio 60, etc)

    Ugh, LVG or Giggs? Neither, but at a push, Giggs. I am fully on board the Jose train, but I'd rather we took the risk with Giggs than sit with another year of LVG, who I don't believe can get us higher than 4th. As I said, Jose is the man I want, but off in a distant second, I'd take Giggs over Van gaal.

    Cantona for the flair
    Ronaldo cause I think he's probably the best player ever, but thats a hard one to choose.
    Neville, mainly cause he was a bit more in line with the time I seriously got into football, growing up.
    If I choose between Keano and Scholes, the other may break my legs :P At a push, Keane. I wish we had a player like him nowadays; a real nonsense leader with a take no prisoners attitude.

    Van Der Sar would be my pick. A bit like Neville, he was the guy who was there and dominating when I was really getting into football and it was becoming an obsession. Big Dave will probably get there in the years to come, and he loses out because of age and experience. but I think when De Gea reaches his mid-30s, he's going to have become probably the greatest goalkeeper of a generation.

    Can't find the draft notes, but here's the basic gists of stories...

    Show One ended with Stone Cold aligning himself with Trump and Double J and AJ Lee recruiting the Luchadores.

    Show Two: Dean would have woken up and Hurricane and Rosey would help him fend off some goons/jobbers (probably the Mean Street Posse), joining his cause. Kaitlyn was to be Trump's current wife, but her time was coming to an end, as Trump only wants newer models. She would have been an "Inside woman", so to speak, working with Dean and AJ. By the end of the episode, the good guys would have realized they needed if they wanted to oust Trump, they'd need another candidate to run against him. One man fits the bill; the Mayor of Star City, and vigilante by night, Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. Hurricane would have known him and introduced him.

    Show Three: Hadn't huge amount of this lined out, other than Queen announcing his presidency bid. Probably have Trump send some goons to attack him, good guys fend them off, before Austin swoops in and beats them down. The ending would have been the good guys realising they needed to get into the mind of Austin, so needed to find the one man capable of giving them insight. Dean would travel to Guantanamo Bay, and the episode would end with Dean walking up to a cell to find an old and decrepit Vince McMahon (with ShagNastii's permission).

    Show Four: Would have mainly focused on the dialogue between Dean and Vince, Vince finding it amusing that anyone thinks they can stop Vince, trying to paint Vince as the good guy of their historic feuds. As its happening, Trump would issue a challange to Queen for a Wrestling PPV to end all PPVs, with the winner of a series of matches winning the presidency of USA.

    PPV Card was to be...

    Dean vs Austin
    Trump vs Queen
    AJ, Kaitlyn, Stacy Kiebler, Sable, Asuka and Renee Young in a match to determine Trump's next wife.
    Hurricane/Rosey vs Mean Street Posse
    Luchadores (Mysterio, Sin Cara and Kalisto) vs Umaga
    And probably Al Snow vs Tony Marino, where Snow has gone insane and now imagines a guy dressed like Batman following him round.

    Was going to go bat-**** crazy at the end, and probably have Trump reveal he had taken all the steroids in the world, so was able to morph into this absolute monster, 10 foot tall, jacked up. Really go DBZ-mode on it, for the lolz. Have them fight on top of a massive building, and have Trump fall to his death. Really off the walls :P

    1) Whats your favourite John Cena feud?

    2) Whats your favourite song ever?

    3) If you could book any former WWF/E Champion ever to return for a year who would it be?

    4) Kevin Dunn gets shot and killed by Jim Cornette so HHH puts you in charge of tv production, first thing he wants changed is the announcers. He wants a 3 man team for Raw consisting of play by play, heel colour and babyface colour commentators. Smackdown will be a 2 man play by play plus heel colour. Pick your teams and no announcer can be on both shows.

    5) Predict the results of Irelands 3 group games at Euro 16

    Jesus - i've been wondering for ages where TeamShadowClan went to - duuuuh!

    1) Would you prefer WWE or ROH to purchase TNA?

    2) Favourite entrance theme?

    3) What kind of music do you listen to yourself?

    4) Are you a Game of Thrones fan?

    1. I guess WWE since they've obviously been bringing in so many of the TNA guys; it's weird that their CVs all have these big holes in them, and if WWE bought the rights, at least then guys like AJ would have a stronger documented career. As it stands, in 10 years time, a lot of these guys will just have these massive gaps. WWE are in the best position to produce the DVDs and so on to take advantage of the video library.

    2. Have had Nakamura's theme on a loop since Takeover. But Zayn and Becky's has a great "Getting into a good mood" beat to it. Sasha's is great too. Or Edge's Metalingus one for a classic.

    3. Will genuinely listen to nearly anything, from pop to rap to rock to musicals. Have had the soundtrack to Hamilton stuck in my head the last few days. Little beats throwing on some Bruno Mars though and relaxing :D

    4. YES! Me and my brother watch it together every Monday. Its fantastic. Really can't wait till next week's with
    JesuSnow. The reaction from the Nights Watch should be epic.

    The West Wing. Am due my forth run-through of it soon.
    Can I cheat and put the Back to the Future trilogy as one answer? :pac:
    Uptown Funk is permanently stuck in my head as the go to "Today is an awesome day" song.

    The soccer mod job ain't so bad, especially since a lot of the serial trolls have vanished since I joined. Most days, it really is only one or two reported posts and most of them aren't an issue. You get a few time sinks, but I've learned to just give them two PMs before cutting them off and not wasting any more time on them. Its not THAT bad, really...unless one of United or Pool win and the other lose on the same day. :P

    Comedy in wrestling has a time and a place. Using this weeks Raw for instance, I was entertained by the Truth/Goldust/Fandaaaaango/Breeze segments. But if you put Reigns/Style/Owens and Zayn in the same segment, I'd have hated it. Then you have guys like New Day who know when to crack jokes and twerk, and when to be serious competitors. It really depends on who is delivering the lines and what sort of character they want to be.

    As above, Uptown Funk at the moment. Loved it when I heard it first on X Factor, and its the type of song that is so easy to pick up. Failing that, maybe a buthering of Gangnam Style :P

    How long do you think a feud should last?
    What is your favourite ending to a feud?

    Who would you Release? Push? Depush? (I'll say not to say Reigns :))

    I feel Edge is to Cena what Rock and Austin were to each other. Which is weird, cause I don't feel they feuded for years. But I felt the two worked well, and Edge cashing in MITB will forever be one of my favorite wrestling moments.

    Would love Angle back in WWE, provided they just used him as a special attraction. So many top matches he could do on a WWE show, even retreading some of the TNA guys now. But Angle vs Rollins, Cesaro, Owens, Zayn...so much potential.

    Raw: Cole (gets a lot of flack, but not all his fault), Graves (really impressed by what I've heard) and Ranallo (like his style)

    Smackdown: I can't think of anyone else I really want; the Raw three could do double duty easy enough, and I don't think we particularly need two teams. Which is a cheating way of saying "I can't think of any other commentators I can bear listing too" :P

    If Ibra can't preform his magic, we might scrap past Sweeden. Belgium will kill Ireland (I think Belgium are a great team). Italy, don't know much about them though. I think we'll be the whipping boys of the group though :(

    As long as its organic. Zayn/Owens has been going years but feels fresh and awesome. Jericho/Ambrose has been going on 8 weeks and is about 5 weeks too long.

    Ending to a feud. Michaels vs Flair. "I'm sorry. I love you!" BAM! Rarely felt as much emotion watching a match. Perfect ending.

    Release: No one, really. There's few on the main roster who can't be used properly or don't contribute, even if they aren't being used right.

    Push: Rusev feels he should be higher up the card. Owens, but I think this is his year; he seems the natural MITB winner right now. Stardust, as I think he's wasted at the moment, and think he's a fun character. Kalisto. Great character and wrestler. Use him!

    Depush: Other than Reigns, I can't think of anyone being over-pushed. Everyone else on the roster deserves more attention if anything.
